Cave de l'Os a Moelle
This restaurant has only three large communal tables, where some of the most delectable French food is served. A fixed menu offers a variety of soups, pates and cheeses, while the main course and desserts are set up as a serve-yourself buffet. Stuff yourself with country fare and try one of the several wines on offer, all of which are considerably cheap and of a good quality.
there is good food and athmosphere, cheap wine.....go there and see and taste. all the people there are only for you and you can eat so much and what you want. The pate is very very good and the desserts are so many
I dined twice at the Cave and loved it. It's like going to a french home with friendly people who can speak a little english and try hard to please.
Be forewarned - it's a small place. You sit at a communal table with 30s business types-all local- not a tourist in sight. The family-style process will be explained to you and all who look lost.
Buy a bottle of wine from the wall facing you as you enter. Carafes of water are on the table along with huge salads of greens, and vegetables. The soup pot and the entrees are on the back wall with big ladles protruding invitingly. On the way to the soup pot, you can take a look at the cheeses and the deserts that are on the long table to the left.
It's a help-yourself free-for-all, but the Parisians are unfailingly polite. Don't worry; just smile and keep saying "Merci".
I found (and find) it the perfect place to eat alone in Paris other than Sunday dinner with Jim Haynes. I look forward to dining there tonight!
Yummmmmy comfort food and ambiance.
We liked the atmosphere. We disliked everything else. We went last night (December 23) because of the great reviews. We have also been to L'Os a Moelle across the street (nice experience) The cave is different. On the table are more vegetables rapees than you need and two pates. Turns out that these are the best part of the meal, however. We had a choice for the main course of a beef soup and a fish soup. The first was in a huge pot with everything but the kitchen sink--obviously every left over from the restaurant across the street. It was only a fair soup with a ton of bones to pick through. The fish soup seemed canned. There was a tiny cheese platter, with only three cheeses, all chevres and very similar. There were many desserts but none worth eating--they were like the ones we used to get in French cafeterias as students. There is no service, of course, only a bartender who explains the self-serve principle, and it is tough to get water to the table, and unless you have the courage to dig through the bags to get bread and cut it yourself, you will have no bread.
